Your walk down the aisle is arguably the most important couple minutes of your life—so you should really have an accompanying song that’s a step or two above “Here Comes the Bride.” We asked wedding planner Jennifer Brisman (who’s seen a casual 2,500 nuptials) for the most gorgeous, unique and well-received processional songs she’s witnessed—as well as how to arrange them.

“Can’t Help Falling In Love with You” by Elvis Presley

Strip this classic down to just an acoustic guitar or two, slow the tempo and cue immediate waterworks.

“God Only Knows” by the Beach Boys (Bryan Adams Version)

Put Aunt Mildred on piano duty for this sultry, romantic cover.

“No Air” by Jordan Sparks

Turn this power ballad over to a string quartet (violin trio and flute) for a contemporary—and majorly beautiful—entrance.

“Baby I Love Your Way” by Peter Frampton

Two classic guitars will lend a folky, bespoke feel to this crowd-pleaser.

“Better Together” by Jack Johnson

Try a solo acoustic cover for an upbeat alternative. (It’s all about the slap and strum.)

“Dream a Little Dream of Me” by Ella Fitzgerald

"Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you, sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you." 

“Who You Love” by John Mayer

There’s just something so pleasing about a classical take on a pop song. Brisman recommends a keyboard and violin combo for this number.

“Mine“ by Bazzi (F. Cabello Cover)

Two words: Fingerstyle guitar.

“Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwoʻole

Father-daughter, processional, you name it: This song is always a good idea.  

“Storybook Love” from “The Princess Bride”

Any Princess Bride fans? The theme song set to classical guitar is utterly romantic.
